president obama says it will take a few more years. a few more years for the u.s. to solve its economic problems. tonight he will tout his so-called promises kept over the past four years at the democratic national convention. a celebration of failure. that's what mitt romney called it. did he keep his promises -- obama that is. why should his contract be renewed as president clinton said last evening. speaking about president clinton and his fine speech last night, tonight we have to take a look at something he said last evening. take a listen. >> when times are tough and people are frustrated, angry, hurting and uncertain, the politics of constant conflict may be good. but what is good politics does not necessarily work in the real world. unfortunately the faction that now dominates the republican party doesn't see it that way. they think government is always the enemy. they are always right and compromises weakness. >> it's good advice that the politics of cooperation are better than the politics of conflict. it has not happened under president obama in washington, d.c. which leads m
in the book those democrats this is a very critical study of the obama leadership all of the sources were democrat. tell us about that decision. >> guest: some of the politics longtime technical people in the defense department or the intelligence services and so on but for the most part these are people that worked alongside the president in one capacity or another in the white house and we need federal agencies in the house of congress to see him up close. what i discovered much to my surprise is this illustration is losing by rivalries, those in tend disagreement in this administration much life the reagan and the nixon administration but much unlike the last bush administration which was very corporate in its cultural field. there wasn't a lot of fighting. the bush memoirs haven't been that some might be. this administration is very different. there is a lot of confusion and frustration. and the administrations, the culture of the administration reflects, so you have obama, someone that comes across the people that know him as a sort of movie and indecisive, sensitive, someone that ha
michelle obama. chris matthews? >> certainly made the connection, don't you think? i mean, so much of tonight was interactive. it was between her and that audience in the room. i thought the camera work was so important watching this on television. you saw on the faces of men and women, black and white, all different backgrounds, the connection. she was with people. the emotional connection, telling the story of her love affair with her husband. with her life of getting ahead. but there was one big difference than four years ago which just came through in the earlier speeches tonight. it was hope and change, yes, hope and change but not hope and change imaginally overnight. but hope through work and patience and time and effort and then change. i think it was a much more mature look at their own lives as they got there. i'll tell you, i assume most americans watching tonight who have been lucky in this country, have gotten close to the american dream, have done it the way they did it. with student loans. with good parents who made them study. of being parents who make their kids st
-killing obama care nationalized medicine. record gas prices? a record number of americans on food stamps, doubling in the past four years to 47 million. this comes as a debt clock goes above the $16 trillion dollar mark. and the worst josh, an worst economy record in the post war era, back to 1947. so go ahead and celebrate, democrats. but as my mentor ronald reagan used to say -- >> ask yourself, are you better off than you were four years ago? is it easier for you to go and buy things in the stores than it was four years ago? is there more orless unemployment in the country than there was four years ago? >> well, i don't think so. and i don't think the democrats should be celebrating. that's just my opinion. we will debate. and also, a comment reportedly by bill clinton has everyone buzzing. quote, a few years ago this guy, meaning president obama, would have been carrying our bags. quite a distasteful comment. but ed klein, author of "the amateur" is our special guest on the whole clinton speech and the convention. the market down $55, the ism manufacturing index fell below 50 for the
, 23 million unemployed or underemployed today. question, the obama team is trying to spin the video as meaning romney only cares about the top 53%. not the 47% who get government benefits. is this damaging to governor romney? tim? >> absolutely damaging to governor romney. because he is writing off a portion of the population. it is not just that he is talking down to them, like barack obama did four yeersz ago, when he talked -- years ago when he talked about the bitter clingers who clinged to guns and religion, and obama says we can win them over and romney is saying i can't win this part of the population. anybody who writes off that population, i don't know where he will get off the 50% to win. >> the problem is they're not all democrats. a lot of them are republicans. they're veterans. they're people who receive benefits, social security. people do not think they're undeserving. so he is insulting basically much of the electorate. and there is a window of his soul. this is how mitt romney thinks, and when he was thinking of that mansion in boca raton, this is i think how rich p
obama's programs? all of them. mitt romney said last night he truly wished obama would have succeeded. i liked the sound of that, but how did that assertion square with romney's own personal decision to run against and plan to defeat president obama long before the president, this president, even took the oath of office. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. the "the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >>> good evening, americans. welcome to "the ed show" live from indianapolis. 67 days until the 2012 election and the fact free republican convention is all history now. and after three days of nonstop lies, tonight, i'm going to set the record straight. what is the truth? this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >>> unlike president obama, i will not raise taxes on the middle class of america. i have a plan to create 12 million new jobs. i will begin my presidency with a jobs tour. president obama began his presidency with an apology tour. >> the truth takes a beating in tampa. as the republican convention ends with another flurry of lies. will the romn

him now, eliminated. and what is president obama going to do about this, not meeting with world leaders, not meeting with israeli prime minister netanyahu? this is when president obama says israel is one of our best friends in the region, just one. instead, he's yacking it up on daytime talk shows like "the view" and while there he refused to call the libyan attack on our embassy an attack of terrorism. tonight we'll look at one more sign of the weakness of this amateur president instead of a world leader. >>> also this evening, the battleground now shifts. new numbers now out shows mitt romney gaining ground on middle class families, a 14-point lead over president obama. romney's now making the point that his middle class tax cuts will give much more take-home pay to middle class folks. douglas holtz eakin walks us through the numbers. >>> a punch line at last night's emmys but it is true. american liberals are being brainwashed by hollywood, and hollywood is being brainwashed by obama. we're going to reveal how one network's primetime show shilling for obama care. first up thi
